We are aware of a scam targeting organizations in Uganda that is representing itself as the Africa Charter of Segal Family Foundation. Please know that we are not in any way affiliated with @sffafricacharter.us email addresses, and we ask that you report any fraudulent activity to local authorities.

The foundation is aware of numerous instances of fraudulent email correspondence, all claiming to be from, or associated with, Segal Family Foundation. If you get an email, phone call, or text that appears to be from Segal Family Foundation for any type of payment or personal information, or if you receive an email or communication seemingly from the foundation that you feel is suspicious, please disregard that communication. Do not send money or provide any personal or bank account information. Do not click on any links.

Please be advised that Segal Family Foundation, foundation employees, or board members do not:

  • Require/request grantees to pay insurance, deposits, or delivery and administrative fees for grant funds
  • Disburse grant payments without a signed grant agreement in place
  • Approach individuals in-person offering grant opportunities
  • Solicit donations at any time
  • Offer investment opportunities
  • Conduct foundation business from personal email accounts
